I wish I could say I have been away on a remote tropical island vacation or that I have been on a grand European get-away, but the fact is I have been working. I’ve been away from my blog for a bit, but I am back. There has been some behind the scenes work going on as well and I will be launching a new website soon, but more on that later.
Summer is finally here for my entire family. The last of my children, my older son, just finished his last exam this past Monday and now all three children are in a constant state of motion all around the house coming and going, eating and eating some more.
Even though I haven’t been writing here, I have been trying to keep up with all of my favorite blogs to see what everyone is cooking. I have been in the mood for salads since the temperature has been hovering around 100 degrees over the past week. At the moment and for the foreseeable future, I am all about refreshing summer salads and anything else that does not require an oven.
Here are seven great summer salad recipes I spotted recently. Why seven? I just love the alliteration, but you probably knew that already. Enjoy!
